  dgit and git-debrebase bugfixes:
  * No longer crash if .git/logs does not exist when we need it.

dgit (9.1) unstable; urgency=medium

  New tools for a "git-push-to-upload" workflow [Ian Jackson & Sean Whitton]:
  * New script in a new binary package: git-debpush.
    The new binary package is small, but
    + git-debpush needs to be in src:dgit, because its test suite is the
      dgit test suite; however,
    + git-debpush is functionally and conceptually independent of dgit,
      so should not go into bin:dgit; in particular
    + git-debpush's dependencies are quite different to the other
      binary packages.
  * New dgit-infrastructure subcommand, tag2upload, to process tags made
    by git-debpush.
    Please see git-debpush(1) for a sketch of the workflow.

  * Allow the -p option to be used with various push modes.
  * Include dgit tag metadata in maintainer view tags.
    For consistency with, and use by, git-debpush.
  * Include quilt metadata in the archive/ (dgit view) tag.
  * rpush protocol: Version 6, which includes split brain information
    for maintainer view tags.  And, actually use newer version
    (was broken in 9.0, which would prefer to select 4 not 5).
  * Add some missing blank lines to tag messages.
  * Some other refactoring.

  Other documentation:
  * dgit(1): fix a reference in the description of --quilt=auto [Sean

  * Do not translate tag subject lines, because these are parsed by

  Test suite:
  * Test cases for new tools for "git-push-to-upload" workflow.
  * drs-git-ext: honour DGIT_DRS_MODE.
  * Provide a stunt sendmail and a stunt dgit.
  * Unset CDPATH in case caller has it set.
  * Some other refactoring.

  * Update d/copyright years to include 2019 [Sean Whitton].

dgit (9.0) unstable; urgency=medium

  dgit - low-impact incompatible change:
  * Drop support for, and testing of, dgit versions which use old tag name
    (debian/V; now that is maintainer view and dgit is archive/debian/V).
    The new tags came in in dgit 2.0 in October 2016.  No version of dgit
    without them was in any Debian release.  We don't expect there are any
    sites using old servers which do not support the new format, or anyone
    using a dgit client older than 2.x who cannot upgrade.

  git-debrebase fixes [Niko Tyni]:
  * Fix `git-debrebase convert-from-dgit-view <upstream>', which
    would crash due to an argument parser bug.  Closes:#930214.
  * git-debrebase(1): typo fix.  Closes:#930215.

  dgit - new capabilities:
  * Support split view with native packages, and with all quilt modes.
    Now we distinguish "split view" (meaning separate dgit branch) from
    "splitting quilt modes" (eg --quilt-unapplied).
    [Prompted in part by enquiries from Sam Hartman]  Closes:#926640.
  * Support for bare debian/ directory (aka packaging-only) git branches
    Ie, --quilt=baredebian[+tarball].  [Thanks for info from Shengjing
    Zhu, and docs and UI contributions/review from Sean Whitton.]
    Closes:#903392.  Closes:#931253.

  dgit - bugfixes:
  * Fix --dgit-view-save option alias, which never worked.
    (--save-dgit-view worked, and still does, though.)
  * i18n: Do not translate import commit messages.

  dgit - other documentation improvements [Sean Whitton]:
  * Expand on description of --include-dirty.  New text may help
    user avoid unexpected file deletion.  Closes:#930922.
  * dgit-maint-*(7): Suggest --name-status --diff-filter.  Closes:#930956.
  * dgit-maint-*(7): Using untagged upstream commits.  Closes:#930964.

  dgit - minor consequences of these other changes:
  * Actually properly reject invalid quilt modes found in git config.
    (Previously they might be accepted and then cause malfunctions.)
  * Reject split brain quilt modes with single-debian-patch.
    (Previously this would malfunction; now we reject it.)
  * i18n: Add translator notes about ASCII art changes display.
  * Drop "dgit view: changes are required..." message.
  * Some other minor changes to quilt fixup error handling.
  * Changes to debugging output related to quilt modes and split view.
  * Introduce rpush protocol version 5.  Minimum version is now 4.
  * Considerable internal rearrangement of quilt fixup code.
  * Considerable test suite work including new tests.

  dgit test suite:
  * dgit-repos-policy-debian: Test taint removal.  Closes:#929249.

dgit (8.3) unstable; urgency=medium

  dgit - Behavioural changes with compatibility implications:
  * Pass --no-source-only-changes to pbuilder and cowbuilder
    Closes:#904862.  This option was only recently added to
    pbuilder.  For compatibility with old pbuilder, say, eg
    `dgit --pbuilder!:--no-source-only-changes'.
  * With --clean=git etc, check the tree is clean even before building
    source in dgit's private directory.  Specifically, with eg dgit sbuild
    or dgit build-source.  dgit prior to 6.0 would always clean the tree.
    dgit 6.0 to 8.1 would ignore untracked files completely, leading to
    occasional lossage.  The pre-6.0 behaviour can be requested with
    --clean=git,always etc. (aka -wga, -wgfa).  Closes:#914317.

  dgit - New features, bugfixes and improved behaviours:
  * Allow uppercase (ascii) letters in multi-orig components,
    as is allowed by the spec in dpkg-source(1).  Closes:#916926.
  * Honour --program!:option to suppress options passed by default.
  * clone: Create destination directory before using network.
  * Check early that build-products-dir is accessible.  Closes:#913648.
  * Look for origs in `..' as well as build-products-dir, and
    there are any, link them into the bpd.  Closes:#904878.
  * Provide new --git[-ff],always clean mode (as discussed above).

  i18n - new translations [Frans Spiesschaert]:
  * nl, dgit-user(7).   Closes:#918253.
  * nl, messages.   Closes:#917148.

  * dgit(1): Fix documentation of .quilt-mode config.
  * dgit(1): Fix a formatting typo (spurious .TP).  Closes:#917194.
  * dgit-user(7): Fix formatting error in comment about multi-arch.
  * dgit-maint-debrebase(7): handle DFSG-filtering for a new package.
    [Sean Whitton]  Closes:#915973.

  Error message improvements:
  * dgit: When reporting no such package, say `source package'.
  * dgit: Fix reference to -wdn/-wddn in a message.
  * dgit: cleaning: Minorly improved handling of note about ignores.
  * dgit-repos-policy-debian: Remove duplicated text from force
    report message.  Closes:#913676.

  i18n infrastructure:
  * po/README: Fix reference to dgit-user_7.pot.
  * po4a, pairwise-pocheck: Fix recognition of bare `<...>'.
  * Update po and pot files.

  Internal changes;
  * dgit: Remove foolish uses of $b, which is very special in perl.
  * Modest refactoring to support the other changes.
  * test suite: pretend-pbuilder: Reject unknown options.
  * Test suite: examplegit setup: Do not leave the tree dirty.

    and (prompted) dgit --overwrite.  Closes:#903377.  [Sean Whitton]

  i18n support:
  * Check pod translations for a common class of syntax error.
    (using new machinery for pairwise checking of pod translations.)
  * po4a: Add -LUTF-8 to the config.
  * po4a/.gitignore: actually ignore right .po4a.LANG.cfg.

  New features [Sean Whitton]:
  * Introduce git configuration key.
  * Die earlier, and with a more helpful message, if the user tries to
    include dirty changes when building a source package in split brain

  dgit behavioural changes:
  * dgit: Always build the source package ourselves, rather than
    sometimes leaving that to the builder command.  dgit will now
    usually generate *_multi.changes rather than *_$arch.changes.
  * dgit: Build source packages in a private directory, except when
    the user passes --include-dirty [Sean Whitton].
    - dgit push-source no longer cleans the tree [Sean Whitton].
  * dgit: Rename --ignore-dirty to --include-dirty (leaving the old
    name supported as a deprecated alias).

  Test suite improvements:
  * test suite: unset VISUAL, which interferes.  Closes:#904308.
  * Honour DGIT_SCHROOT_CHROOT to set the schroot to use for the sbuild
  * Support tests/run-all --progressive.
  * Drop now-obsolete *-asplit tests.

  Other improvements:
  * apt-get method: when apt does not update release files,
    unconditionally print hint about noatime.  Closes:#851873.
  * messages: Be a lot more friendly about NEW in particular,
    and also add a couple of `please's.  Closes:#904448.
  * Make --build-products-dir (and the new config key) actually work.
    Closes:#863582.  [ Ian and Sean. ] 
  * dgit: Many important internal rearrangemnts relating to source
    package production and building.

  * Merge the experimental branch containing the fianl

      - The tests now pass (most of the time, at least) in
        current Debian unstable, whereas 5.5's fail utterly.
      - There is still occasional lossage.  So when running tests
        in a loop (eg to test ever commit), it is still good to set
        DGIT_TEST_RETRY_COUNT=3 (say).

  * dgit(7): Updated `trouble' section to suggest having dpkg-source
    delete the autotools output (with a patch if necessary).
  * dgit(1): Several minor updates and fixes.  Closes:#850519.

  Test suite:
  * Internal improvements.
  * badcommit-rewrite: Fix operation using installed version of fixup.
  * Arrange to pass --debug-quick-random to gpg-agent.
  * Strip block count out of find -ls output - it is unstable!
  * gbp-orig: Add a missing -m, without which git would run an
    editor if stdout was a tty (!)
  * Add t-stunt-parsechangelog to a few tests which were missing it.
  * Tests for the new protocol feature.
  * Fail tests if we look up any configuration relating to Debian.

  Dealing with fallout from #849041:
  * Provide dgit-badcommit-fixup history-rewriting script.
  * New rewrite map feature, which allows dgit git server to adjust
    clients' interpretation of Dgit fields, so that history-rewriting is
    effective.  (Feature is only partially implemented right now -
    enough to dig current Debian users out of the hole.)  Re:#850431.

  Test suite:
  * New test case for history-rewriting.
  * Change `local foo=$(bar)' idiom to `local foo; foo=$(bar)' since
    the former does not trip set -e even if bar fails :-(.

  Changed behaviour:
  * quilt fixup: Permit creation of patches which delete files, by psssing
    --include-removal to dpkg-source, and tolerating it when we do our
    quilt fixup analysis.  dpkg-source has supported this since at least
    stretch.  Closes:#848901.

  * Produce better error reporting when absurd git wrapper fails
    on a patch during .dsc import.  Apropos of #848391.

  * If we cannot hardlink origs into our extraction area, use symlinks

  New features:
  * Support the Debian *-security suites.
  * New comma-separated multiple-suite merging facility (readonly),
    so that users can easily track "jessie, or jessie-security".
  * dgit-user(7): Suggest `dgit clone P jessie,-security'.

  * Cope when an orig tarball is a tarbomb.  Ie, if it contains
    other than one single directory toplevel.  Closes:#843422.
  * Actually honour the branch name, if we are on dgit branch, to specify
    the suite, as documented in the manpage.
  * When cloning a distro which has no git server, correctly leave
    the user on the local dgit branch, not on `master'.
  * Fix an unconditional print that was supposed to be a printdebug:
      origs <blah>.orig.tar.gz f.same=1 #f._differ=-1
  * Print a slightly better message if .git found in orig tarball(s).

  Test suite:
  * Test suite: Add fakeroot and make to Test-Depends.  These aren't

  New features:
  * During push, automatically calculate which .origs are required,

  * New import-dsc feature.
  * New option --dgit-view-save= for split view quilt modes.
    In particular, means that the output of a split view quilt-fixup
    is left somewhere useful.
  * dgit clone: Set timestamps in cloned tree to a single unified time.
    This makes it less likely that the user will trip over any
    timestamp-dependent FTBFS bugs (eg #842452).
  * Support dgit --delayed= push (with a warning in the manpage
    about possible skew).
  * dgit gbp-build will arrange to let gbp buildpackage generate
    .orig tarballs if it seems applicable.  Closes:#841094.

  Documentation improvements:
  * dgit-*(7).  Many new tutorial manpages, several written and many
    improved by Sean Whitton.
  * dgit(7): Substantial updates, including documenting split view.
  * dgit(1): Better cross-references.

  * dgit(1): Improved BUGS section.
  * Fix changelog entry for SIGPIPE to correctly mention

  * Split brain mode: Fix --new.  Closes:#842577.

  * Reject `dgit pull' in split view quilt modes, to avoid
    creating unfortunate wreckage on non-dgit-view branches.
  * Cope when cloning suite which doesn't receive uploads,
    like testing.  Closes:#842621.

    the user can override it.  Closes:#796019.

  New checks and improved behaviours:
  * Detect and reject git trees containing debian/source/local-options
    or debian/source/local-patch-header.
  * In --dry-run mode, _do_ actually run dpkg-source --commit so that we
    actually do construct the quilt fixup commit; instead, honour
    --dry-run by avoiding pulling it back to your HEAD.
  * quilt-fixup checks that the git tree is clean, as for build-prep.

  * Document that -cname=value applies only for this run.
  * Improve manpage comment about defining a new distro.
  * Document that --quilt=linear is the default for Debian.
  * Fix a formatting problem in --build-products-dir= doc.
  * In manpage, do not seem to imply that NMU should be of only one
    new commit.
  * Qualify to Debian the manpage comment about how to do NMU.
  * In discussion on how to start using dgit when already using git, do
    not imply/assume that existing git history will have identical trees
    to dgit history.
  * Remove stray sentence in config section of manpage.
  * Manpage: Clarify wording of readonly config.
  * Manpage: Better cross-references for -k and keyid.
  * dgit(7): No longer say that dgit-repos lives on Alioth.

  * Slurp in entire git config, for better performance.
  * Rename `git-build' operation to `gbp-build' to make it clearer what
    it's for.  Keep the old name as an alias.
  * Show `dgit sbuild' in usage message.
  * When we are using dpkg-buildpackage to clean before using it to also
    do the build, let it do its cleaning thing as part of its run, rather
    than running it twice.  When we are _not_ supposed to be using
    dpkg-buildpackage to clean, but we are running it to do the build,

    alioth aren't suitable right now because the master there can
    currently only be updated with an actual upload, ie dgit push.)
  * Make warnings fatal in dpkg-repos-admin-debian, dgit-ssh-dispatch
    (using setup_sigwarn).
  * Make warnings fatal in tstunt/dpkg-parsechangelog (directly).
  * Test suite: Honour DGIT_TEST_DEBUG=''.
  * With -DDDD, print out all gitcfg references (copious!)
  * Fix a debug message in the obsolete sshpsql archive access driver.
  * Test suite: More automatic enumeration of tests.
  * Test suite: Provide tests which check that all our various build
    operations run the right targets as expected (ie, that we are massaging
    the arguments to dpkg-buildpackage, and suppressing our clean target,

  * Client uses new infrastructure:
    - Check for new dgit git service on (ie, with transition plan based on diversion feature.
    - Old versions of dgit will stop working when the server-side handle is

  * dgit git trees no longer contain .pc for format `3.0 (quilt)' source
    packages.  Closes:#764606.
    - It is deleted whenever we find it.
    - Older versions of dgit will choke on trees without .pc.
    - (When doing quilt fixup, we recreate a suitable .pc in a temporary
      directory so that we can do dpkg-source --comit.)

  * All users are urged to upgrade ASAP.

  Other significant improvements:

  * When generating quilt patches, try to linearise the git history into a
    series of individual new patches for debian/patches.  Closes:#770710.

  * When receiving a push with dgit-repos-server, update the server's
    refs/heads/master if we are pushing to what the distro regards as a
    relevant branch, and the push would ff master.  Closes:#728209.

  * For non-Debian distros, distro version release tags contain distro
    name a la DEP-14 (rather than hardcoding `debian/').

  * Set up a merge driver for debian/changelog.  Closes:#769291.

  * --clean=git and --clean=none cause dgit to pass -nc to
    dpkg-buildpackage, suppressing calls to the package's clean target.
    Also, expand the documentation in this area slightly.  Closes:#768590.

  * Provide --clean=git-ff (aka -wgf), which is useful for dgit itself (!)

  Minor improvements:

  * Reduce some noise output and improve the clarity of some messages.
  * Be more careful about tag updates during fetch: only update tags
    referring to uploads to distro we are trying to fetch from.
  * Change realpath dependency to `coreutils (>= 8.23-1~) | realpath'


  * Fix handling of rmadison-based and gitless distros (e.g., Ubuntu).
  * Add missing `gpgv' to test dependencies in debian/tests/control.
  * Strip `-b <branch>' from contents of Vcs-Git header, when setting up
    the vcs-git remote.  Closes:#759374.
  * Do not offer wget as an alternative dependency to curl.  We always
    unconditionally invoke curl and have no code to use wget.
  * Complain about lack of cuddled values for value-taking single-letter
    options, rather than thinking the user meat an empty value.
  * Reject (rather than ignoring) further options merged witth -wn, -wg,
  * Fix inaccurate error message when archive's git hash is not an
    ancestor of git repo's git hash.
  * Detect and bomb out on vendor-specific `3.0 (quilt)' patch series.
  * Fix the rules clean target to remove test results and output.

  Documentation improvements:

  * Break out dgit(7) from dgit(1).
  * Provide example workflow for dgit rpush.  Closes:#763334.
    (Also part of the fix for #768470.)
  * Document that dgit repos are cloneable with git, in dgit(1)
    section MODEL.  [Andreas Barth.]  Closes:#768470.
  * Better documentation for quilt series handling.
  * Document under `dgit push' that it is best to build with dgit too.
  * Other minor clarifications and improvements.

  Behind-the-scenes work:

  * Use ftpmasterapi archive query method.
    (Closes:#727702.  Also partly obsoletes #768470.)
  * New dgit-infrastructure binary package containing dgit-repos-server et
    al.  Client users probably don't want this stuff.  Also, it provides a
    convenient way to publish the dependencies.
  * Many many bugfixes to the server side (dpkg-repos-server et al.).
  * Add :..; prefix to ssh remote commands, for the benefit of future
    forced command wrappers.  Implicitly, this defines a new ssh-based
    command protocol.  Closes:#720174, #720175.
  * Distro access configuration handling changes (should not be noticeable
    to most users).
  * In places, significant restructuring or tidying up.
  * Turn all perl warnings into errors using $SIG{__WARN__}.

  * Document that dgit rpush needs gnupg and your public key on the build
    host.  Closes:#736529.
  * Fix a manpage reference to `--dget=' where `--dgit=' was intended.
  * Provide t-archive-process-incoming and t-archive-query subroutines for
    regression test scripts to use.
  * Print better message for unknown operations.
  * Provide `dgit clean'.  Closes:#736527.
  * When cloning, set up a remote `vcs-git' from the package's Vcs-Git
    (and put an appropriate caveat in the manpage).  Closes:#740687.
  * Improve error message for .dsc having already been signed (iff
    using libdpkg-perl 1.17.x).  Closes:#731635.
  * Improve error message for .dsc parsing failures more generally.
  * Better reporting of child exit statuses (esp. deaths due to signals).
  * In rpush, on protocol error talking to build host, check if the
    subprocess died and report differently if so.  Closes:#736528.
  * Fixed a manpage typo.
  * When tests invoke dgit, use --dgit= so that subprocesses use our
    dgit rather than system one.
  * Add a test for dgit rpush.

  Major new feature, currently stalled awaiting server infrastructure:
  * dgit-repos-server: New program for receiving signed-tag-based
    pushes.  Corresponding support in dgit itself, but not currently
    used by default for any distro.
  * Bring forward push of the version tag ref so it happens alongside
    the push of the suite branch ref.
  * New git-check and git-create methods "true" which are no-ops.
  * test-dummy-drs `distro': for testing dgit and dgit-repos-server.

  Bugfixes relating to unclean trees:
  * Run a clean (of the specified type) before any build operation; do
    this with `dpkg-buildpackage -T' clean if necessary, so -wd now works
    with all the building methods.
  * Refuse to do quilt fixup (explicitly requested, or as a result of
    build) if the tree contains ignored files.  Closes:#731632.

  Error message improvements:
  * Use failedcmd to report errors when ssh psql fails.  Closes:#734281.
  * failedcmd prints $us, not $_[0] - ie, dgit doesn't pretend,
    in the error message, to be its child.
  * Do not report the (irrelevant) $? when madison parsing fails.

  Better workflow flexibility:
  * Provide --build-products-dir option (and corresponding semantics
    for -C) to specify where to find the files to upload.  Closes:#731633.

  Support for Debian backports suites:
  * New quirks infrastructure in configuration and internals,
    for suites (or perhaps distros) which are a bit like others.
  * Use correct default archive location.
  * Compute "-v" option default value correctly.
  * Closes:#733954.

  Packaging improvement:
  * Add `Testsuite: autopkgtest' to debian/control.  (This will only have
    the right effect with recent enought dpkg; it will generate a harmless
    warning with earlier versions of dpkg.)

  * sshpsql archive query method passes LANG=C.  Closes:#729788.
  * Subcommand program or argument options containing hyphens work.
    (Eg, --dpkg-buildpackage:blah was previously incorrectly rejected.)

  Packaging fixes:
  * Depend on dput.
  * Depend on curl | wget, as dget needs one of those.  (The dput package,
    which contains dget, doesn't require them because dput itself works

dgit (0.18) unstable; urgency=low

  Major new feature:
  * Remote push (dgit rpush), a la debsign -r.  Closes:#721185.

  Improved behaviours:
  * dgit build, by default, uses the archive to find out what the correct
    -v<version> option is to pass to dpkg-genchanges.  Closes:#727200.
  * Abolish the sshdakls method and replace it with sshpsql: that is, ssh
    (to coccia, by default) and run sql commands on the ftpmaster
    database.  This is faster and has fewer bugs but is vulnerable to db
    schema changes.  Closes:#726955.  Closes:#720170.  Closes:#720176.
  * When generating git tags, quote the (uncanonicalised) changelog's
    Distribution field as the suite.
  * Command execution reports from --dry-run go to stderr.

  Other new features:
  * Support --gpg=... to provide a replacement command for gpg.
  * Support --ssh=... and --ssh:... to affect how we run ssh.

  * When using sbuild, pass the arguments to mergechanges in the right
    order so that we use the correct Description (the _source one,
    not the one from sbuild which didn't get e.g. -v<version>).
  * push actually takes an optional suite, like it says in the synopsis.
  * Fix dgit --damp-run sbuild to actually work.
  * Fix the "shellquote" internal subroutine.  The bugs in it ought not to
    have caused any real trouble in previous versions of dgit.

  Documentation and message fixes:
  * manpage: Clarify comments about orig tarballs.  Closes: #723605.
  * manpage: Remove comment in BUGS about lack of policy docs
    for Dgit field, which is specified now.  Closes:#720201.
  * manpage: Make discussion of --existing-package less scary.  The
    default archive access method no longer needs it.  Closes:#720171.
  * Mention "git merge", not "git-merge", in helpful message.

  Internal and debugging improvements:
  * Report chdir actions in debugging output.
  * Improvements to implementation of --dry-run and --damp-run.
  * Some code motion and cleanups.

  Note: changelog entries for the following versions, which were uploaded
  to Debian experimental, have been collapsed into this single entry:

  * Do not grobble around in .git/refs/; instead, use git-show-ref.

  * Format `(3.0) quilt' fixup does not mind extraneous other files
    in the build tree (e.g., build products and logs).  Closes: #727053.
  * Set autoflush on stdout, to get better ordering of debugging
    etc. output when stdout is redirected.
  * New --damp-run mode, for more convenient and fuller testing etc.
